What is Berber carpet?

Berber carpet has evolved some over the years. It was once carpeting characterized by light colors with flecks of darker color mixed in, with a loop pile made it a perfect fit for many areas. While the performance and trustworthiness of the flooring are still there, some changes have been made, so let’s learn more about what you can expect today.

Here’s what you can expect from Berber carpeting

These days, Berber carpet is most often defined by a looped pile construction from fibers such as wool, olefin, nylon, and others. These tightly woven, uncut loops are perfect for high traffic areas, resistant to crushing and stains, especially if made of nylon.

Since the loops in Berber are shorter than many other carpet types, you’ll find them to be hard-wearing and durable, especially over time. But they are just as perfect as a décor addition as well.

As a beautiful addition to your interior design, you may pay much less for this flooring than you expected for a carpet product, although it looks and performs like a high-priced piece. It will serve you well in almost every room of your home and could be the conversation starter you need for your next get-together, so check these products out when you're in the area.
